An easy reading and pleasant story, depends if you believe in the power of the supernatural, the ending was quite predictable

4.0 out of 5 stars I Just couldn't put it down, 2 July 2013

I found the relationship dynamics of this book really engaging and the "I don't believe it" nature of the story really made it a compiling read

I loved these books. I could not put them down I read all three within a week. Saucy, and very diverting. That's what reading is about...

3.0 out of 5 stars Garmin Nuvi, 16 Feb. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I purchased the Nuvi as a present to replace a Travel master that was quite out of date and kept loosing signal all the time.
This unit is clear, finds a signal quickly and doesn't keep loosing it.

However I find that sometimes near really close turnings/ busy intersections it doesn't give its instructions early enough for you to be clear where you need to go. Also I used to like the fact that on my old machine I could have half the screen taken up by the "map type" instruction so at a glance you could see what was coming up. The Nuvi has this feature but it is takes up just a small square in the top left hand corner which when driving you can not glance at with ease.

The only other thing I don't like too much is the size of the in car charger, it keeps getting in the way, but you can get around this by buying the travel charger kit and charging up the internal battery when at home and using the unit without the in car charger connection.

4.0 out of 5 stars Garmin Nuvi Travel is exactly what it says on the box, 16 Feb. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
When you buy the Garmin Nuvi Sat Nav machine it comes with an in car charger which I found to be really chunky and it kept getting in the way whilst changing gears. The battery life of the unit is ok for short trips but as it works on trickle charge you do need to keep charging it up as you go. I found that using the TRAVEL CHARGER at home works better as the unit's battery will last for a 3-4hours so if I am going somewhere unfamiliar I don't have to put up with the in car charger cable.
